US strategist and military historian Dr. Edward Luttwak has said that Chinese policy of expansionism is turning its neighbours into enemies. In an interview to DD News, Mr. Luttwak said, India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi ramped up infrastructure in Ladakh and other areas along the LAC. He said, this infrastructural development including the strategic location of Daulat Beg Oldi air base has unnerved China.
